Raise your fists: Street Fighter V releases today on PS4 and PC

 

Are you ready for Street Fighter V?! You’d better be, because Capcom has announced that it is available today on PS4 and PC (I hope you know this already). Because of a partnership between Sony and Capcom ($), Street Fighter V offers cross-platform play between PC users and PS4 gamers for the very first time! Players in the U.S. can get their fists on the game both physically and digitally on the PS4 or as a digital download on Windows PC, for $59.99. European users have the option of getting the game either physically or digitally on both platforms.

Surprisingly, Capcom, of all companies, has said that the initial Street Fighter V will be the only version players need to always be up to date with later iterations. No Super or Ultra versions, Capcom? I’ll believe it when I see it. Still, I want to believe, and Capcom is making some great promises: June 2016 will see the title receive a cinematic story expansion for free, with further content like costumes, challenges, and balance system updates being added to the game this year and beyond.

Speaking of promises, here’s the one I am most excited about: Capcom has stated that for the first time in SF history, all post launch content for SFV can be obtained with Fight Money, which gamers can earn by completing in-game challenges. Of course, this will probably take a lot of grinding, which is why Capcom is also presenting the option to get this content with actual money, which is used to get an in-game currency called Zenny. Hey, it’s the thought that counts, right?

The first post launch content will appear in March, when the in-game store finally opens and a new character becomes available: Alex, of SFIII fame. If you play through all of the single player modes from now until then, like I have been doing, then you should have enough Fight Money to get Alex as soon as he launches! YAY!

Street Fighter V is rated T for Teen. Will I be seeing any of you readers online for a quick match or two?
